    I look forward to this… I'm lately involved a lot with Basic Fantasy RPG,mind if I promote this around them? It's closer to B/X than OD&D but I think it might be pertinent to some of their interests.

    @Rachel: Please do so, while these rules will be written for 0e, they should be easy to drop in a B/X-type game (which Basic Fantasy is) without many issues — just a bit of filing off rough spots to fit the slightly different system.
